Panel Discussion

Please join SAGA in welcoming three local designers who will be speaking at our Annual Panel Discussion.

This year our focus for Panel Discussion is to highlight graduates from CSUN that have gone on to do inspiring things. We have chosen to go with someone fresh out of school by a year or two, someone who graduated around five years ago and someone who has been in the industry for over 10 years. This way our students can hear about the journey these designers have gone on since graduating from CSUN.

Our first speaker is Nir Gutman. Nir graduated from CSUN a few years ago and works at BLT & Associates as a Junior Designer.

Our second speaker is Miguel Almena. Miguel graduated in 2004 and was a former President of SAGA. He is currently head of development and design at Newco International.

We will finish our discussion with Aaron Atchison (design guru). Aaron created the Mugo Player winning the Intel Digital Artist 2009 Awards. Aaron graduated over 10 years ago and is a design inspiration.

The information is as follows:
Date: November 18th, 2010
